Foreign hosters with the ability to pay from Russia

Hello! My name is Leonid, I am the owner of the Search VPS service. Recently, I started getting a lot of questions in feedback about how to pay for foreign hosting, since Visa and MasterCard of Russian banks stopped working outside of Russia.

There are all sorts of workarounds in the form of obtaining a foreign bank card that is replenished with cryptocurrency, using a QIWI wallet and other crutches, however, in my opinion, the easiest way is an international currency bank transfer, which currently works fine for all banks, with the exception of a few under sanctions.

I want to warn you right away that a SWIFT transfer will take several days, your bank may charge a commission for sending a payment, plus intermediary banks may “bite off” something along the way, but most often these will be insignificant amounts. A definite plus in this case is the lack of conversion: if you have dollars on your account, then you can send a payment directly in this currency, and the recipient will also receive dollars.

Below I have prepared a list of foreign hosters that accept payments to a bank account. Please note that payment by bank transfer is most often not automated, for this you may need to write to technical support.

Naturally, paying by bank transfer is many times more complicated than by card, but in the current conditions, when you need to pay for foreign hosting, this may actually be the only option.

If you know more hosters that support this option – write in the comments, I’ll add it.
